Have you ever wonder what it would be like to fly free like the birds in the sky? Now you can. At iFly Singapore you’ll be able to experience skydiving in our little island city.
Background of iFly Singapore
It is a franchise of SkyVenture which operates more than 32 wind tunnels around the world. Every single day, they bring joy to thousands of people by allowing them to experience skydiving at their convenience. They are the market leader in bringing skydiving to the masses.
Lawrence Koh is the founder of iFly Singapore. He was a military paratrooper and was part of the Red Lions who impress crowds every year at the National Day Parades.
Amazingly, Lawrence has clocked more than 1000 jumps over his distinguished military career.
He is also part of a group of skydivers who holds the Singapore record for a 12500 feet dive over the city centre of Singapore. He has lived through the incredible experiences of skydiving and started iFly to allow more people to experience it.
The Initial Experience
The whole process at iFly Singapore resembles that of being in an airport. Once you enter the building, you will feel like you are waiting to catch a flight. Only this time, you are both the plane and passenger.
Imagine the sleek and renown Changi Airport, and that’s pretty much what the entire iFly experience encases. When you register, you are greeted by a counter that is reminiscent of an airport check-in counter.
An entire experience of iFly is estimated to last a total of two hours. You are required to be present for about an hour before the time of your flight booking. Don’t be late as iFly follows a pretty strict schedule. They may charge you an extra fee if you need to reschedule your flight.
There will be a safety briefing to ensure you are well-prepared to enjoy the bliss of flying. Gears such as the flight suit, helmet and goggles are provided at no additional cost.
You will be required to sign an indemnity form before you are officially allowed to join the program.
The focus on safety stands out at iFly Singapore. They have a long track record of safety both in Singapore and all over the world. Their patented technology allows you to enjoy a heart-racing activity with minimal risks.
iFly’s training and safety system are also certified by the International Bodyfight Association (IBA). It is indeed up to world-class standards.
With such stringent regulations, skydiving at iFly Singapore is as safe as it can be.
The Training Before
Step into the next room, and that is where the real training begins. There is a big screen that will play instructional and training videos. Pay close attention as there are important information that is required for you to enjoy the experience thoroughly.
One crucial thing that you must learn is the hand signals. While you are skydiving, it is almost impossible to communicate normally. Therefore, the only form of communication is through these hand signals.
After the videos, a friendly instructor will come in to guide you on how best to achieve the right flying posture. There are two comfortable benches where you can lie down to practice your skydiving stance. The instructor will be there to offer you advice and feedback constantly.
After this, you are all set for one of the most thrilling experiences of your life.
Fly Free Like a Bird
When you first set your eyes on the 17 metres tall wind capsule, you will be blown away by its humungous size.
The wind tunnel is made of acrylic glass that allows you to set your eyes upon the beautiful Siloso beach during your skydiving adventure. With excellent views of the deep blue ocean, while you soar in the air, it is indeed an all-encompassing experience.
If your flight is at night, you could even catch the light show from the Sentosa Wings of Time performance.
No matter day or night, it is always an incredible physical and visual treat.
Inside, wind speeds of up to 170km per hour carry you off your feet into the magical feeling of flying without wings. For a first-timer, you may not feel fully in control of the situation. Inside the wind tunnel, even the smallest movements can result in a big reaction.
However, there’s no reason to worry. Your friendly instructor will be right by your side at all times. He or she will constantly give you advice, adjust your posture or even fly with you.
Memories of Your Flying Experience
First and foremost, the incredible feeling of floating in mid-air is indescribable. It is truly a memory of a lifetime.
To remember the experience, iFly has created physical mementos that you can keep. After you completed your flights, a certificate of achievement will be presented to you.
Want to remember the flying experience? You can purchase a professionally taken photo from your skydiving journey. That picture will look good on your office desk. A conversation starter for sure.

What Should I Wear?
Comfort is the name of the game.
Avoid ill-fitting or overly tight clothing. Shirts with collars are also not recommended as it will move around intensely during your flight due to high wind pressures. We would recommend a simple T-shirt as your attire of choice.
Regarding footwear, you are required to wear shoes. Again, comfort is important. A good pair of sports shoes or your favourite pair of sneakers will do the trick. Not to worry if you can’t get a hold of a pair of shoes, you can rent a pair for just a few dollars.
Accessories such as jewellery and watches need to be taken off before your flight. While there are lockers available for you to use, we would recommend that you keep your precious diamond necklace at home!
For participants with long hair, do tie it up unless you appreciate the bird nest hair look after your flight.
